Dr. Hartke helped me have a vbac and was wonderful during that process. After my second daughter was born I had an iud put in by her nurse practitioner. She puctured my colon and uterus during this process. I got so ill and she kept telling me I just had the flu. I tried to get in to have them see me because my abdomen was very bloated and distended. They would not see me. I got a second opinion that sent me to ER where i had to go to ICU and had emergency surgery. Took years to recoverHorrible.

Just had my first appointment with Dr. Hartke. I've never had a doctor take so much time to discuss my health history and answer my questions. She is professional, kind, and thorough.

Dr. Hartke is truly amazing in everyway. I chose her as my OBGYN 3 years ago after a failed ablation through an Aurora Doc. She had no choice but to perform a hysterectomy. It was the best decision I made ! She gave me a call the night before my surgery to comfort me, and ask any last minute questions. That's a nice touch, and gains you a restful night of sleep. The surgery was painless, and I have only 3 tiny scars from the laser incisions . Thank you Doctor, you are the best :)
